GUIDED BY VALUES
Purolator says one of the strongest elements of its success over the years has been its
adherence to its corporate values, which it says guide the company in everything it does.
According to Purolator, its corporate values consist of five key elements:
* People First - "We recognize that our teammates and their families are key stakeholders," the company says. "We will only be successful as a business and a service
provider to our customers if we provide our teammates with a safe and healthy workplace. We ensure that we have the right people, in the right roles, with the support
they need to succeed. We hire for attitude and train for skills."
*Customer Focus - "We can only create long-term, sustainable shareholder value and
meaningful customer experiences if we deliver products and services that our customers value and are willing to compensate us fairly for," the company says. "We are committed to giving our customers compelling reasons to choose us over our competition."
*Corporate Stewardship - "Our teammates are custodians of this great Canadian organization," the company says. "We strive to make our company a better place for our
teammates to work in and our customers to rely on. We work together to strengthen
the communities we serve, and we manage our business ethically and sustainably."
Transparency - "Trust, a value that is universally cherished, can only be earned and
maintained if we are open and honest with our employees, customers, suppliers and
other stakeholders," the company says. "Except to the extent necessary to comply
with the law or protect competitively sensitive information, we will ensure that everyone has a common understanding of where we are, where we are going and how we
arrive at significant decisions."
* Performance Excellence - "We can achieve all of the above only if we work collaboratively, as one big team with aligned goals, giving our best to our teammates, our
customers and our communities," the company says. "We demand and recognize
excellence, both in terms of what we achieve and how we achieve it."
